Opening Times

You can experience The Real Mary King’s Close seven days a week – we only rest on Christmas Day when the attraction is closed. Tours are frequent, taking place every 15 minutes from 10am (9.30am in August)

Your experience will last one hour and we do ask that visitors arrive 15 minutes prior to their tour so that the tour can leave on time! We recommend that you pre-book your tickets to avoid disappointment. 

An Overground Tour Experience is available as a bolt on to the standard tour for an additional £5. This 1 hour overground tour is bookable online, in person or over the telephone on 0131 225 0672.

* Please note that the tour of The Real Mary King's Close is not suitable for children under 5, therefore they are not admitted.

To ensure you do not miss out on your tour of The Real Mary King’s Close, we do recommend reserving your places in advance as tour spaces are limited and for this reason we do get very busy at the usual peak times – Hogmanay, on weekends, school holidays and during the August festivals period for example.

You can book your tickets online here to be sure of your space!
